The Birds of Nottinghamshire book launch

On Saturday December 14th Attenborough Nature Reserve, well known as a great spot to see over-wintering ducks and species such as great crested grebe and kingfisher will host the launch of a unique book which charts the fortunes of the county’s birds drawing on records dating back as far as 1850 – when rare birds were more likely to have been shot with a gun rather than a camera - as well as more recent studies.

The Birds of Nottinghamshire, will be launched at a special event at Attenborough Nature Reserve this coming Saturday. The event will include free talks and book signing sessions at 10am and 1pm.

If you love birdwatching then this book is a must. Looking back at the past 150 years of bird life in Nottinghamshire, the book illustrates the changing fortunes of species in our county down the years and needless to say, Attenborough features in it a lot so we’re delighted to be hosting the official launch – so do come and join us.
